How is this not an unconstitutional restriction on the First Amendment right of Free Speech/Free Press?

While the Left distracts everyone with hysteria about Trump's "fascism", it sets about "liquidating" the First Amendment.

How did this get passed and signed without warning cries about incipient "fascism"?

Notice also how the rhetoric of "anti-discrimination" gets used to trump the express Constitutional language of the First Amendment that mandates that there be "no law" that restricts the right of the press.

Obviously, the age of actors is a minor issue, but the principle that "discrimination" concerns can be used to restrict any speech is a big deal.

Also, the concern is idiotic. Most people who read IMDB are not hiring actors and the people who do hire actors have other resources to find out this information.  Also, there is a law already in place that prohibits age discrimination.

//“On behalf of everyone in the industry who has struggled with age discrimination, whose opportunities to showcase their talent may have been blocked, I want to thank Gov. Brown and the bill’s author, Assemblymember Ian Calderon," says SAG-AFTRA’s Gabrielle Carteris.
California Gov. Jerry Brown on Saturday signed legislation that requires certain entertainment sites, such as IMDb, to remove – or not post in the first place – an actor’s age or birthday upon request.

The law, which becomes effective January 1, applies to entertainment database sites that allow paid subscribers to post resumes, headshots or other information for prospective employers. Only a paying subscriber can make a removal or non-publication request. Although the legislation may be most critical for actors, it applies to all entertainment job categories.//

If you want to know who your elites are, find out about whom you may not know their ages.

How is "stop and frisk" not an unconstitutional restriction on an individuals right to be free of illegal search and seizure?
